Synopsis of Sands of Iwo Jima 123movies: John Marion Stryker is the final Marine, a hard rifle squad leader who in 1943 is assigned a squad of recent recruits saddled with 3 veterans and an old enemy of Stryker’s from previous responsibilities within the Far East. One recruit in particlar is a source of friction with Stryker, Peter Conway, whose father was Stryker’s CO at Guadalcanal and who felt his son turned into too tender and cowardly to be a Marine. The squad grows more and more green with envy at Stryker’s increasingly more brutal education routine and his lack of sympathy for the numerous non-public problems of the recruits, but his determination to mould them into preventing guys enables keep their lives whilst the squad is landed at Tarawa in November 1943 and Stryker risks his existence to explode a Japanese bunker that has slaughtered Marines trapped at a log wall. The now warfare-tested squad will become greater closely-knit and Stryker’s dating with the men warms as the squad subsequently finds itself within the bloodiest island battle of the warfare, at Iwo Jima.
